Default Automatically exporting .CSV file from Plot

Hello to everyone,
this is my first post so please don't be harsh on me

I'm a final year mechanical engineering student and I've been tasked with using STAR CCM + to perform a sensitivity analysis on various parameters in the discharge of DEM particles through a hopper.

My simulations are running like clock work using the following code I found on the forums in combination with a .bat file.

I would however like to automatically export the plot data generated in each run to a .csv file in the format: *file name plot name*.csv for example:
my simulation M45SF00NR05TR05RR0001.sim should output
M45SF00NR05TR05RR0001 PC.csv and
M45SF00NR05TR05RR0001 MH.csv

which would be marbles, 45 degrees, static friction 0.0, Normal restitution 0,5... PC = particle hight, MH = Maximum Height etc

// STAR-CCM+ macro:
package macro;

import java.util.*;
import javax.swing.*;

import star.common.*;
import star.base.neo.*;
import star.vis.*;
import star.flow.*;

public class run extends StarMacro {

public void execute() {

private void execute0() {

try {
Simulation simulation_0 = 


simulation_0.saveState(simulation_0.getSessionPath ());

} catch (Exception e) {
null, e.toString()
I'm not familiar with JAVA code or creating macro files yet so any assistance will be greatly appreciated, thanks
